A - hazy golden orange with 2 fingers of off-white foamy head that retains extremely well
S - floral and resiny hop odour with hints of citrus
T - the hops definitely dominate, floral and slightly metallic with lasting bitterness, and i think a little fruity yeast flavour on the finish along with the lasting metallic
M - starts bubbly, then the hoppy bitterness really starts to fill out your mouth, so much so that it finishes a little too dry and sharp for my IPA tastes
D - I enjoyed my 1L pot-stopper bottle in sitting, but I don't think I'd want to venture much further as the dryness and metallic aftertaste seems to build with more

Pours an orange-amber color in the tall chalice. Plenty of foam and even some lacing, though on the coarse side. Tang of carbonation on the tongue. Light body with some fragrant resiny notes and a sweet flowery aroma.
This is a pretty unpretentious hoppy brew. Some browned biscuit taste but quite a light malt flavor. Resiny with the grapefruit peel taste taking over the rest of the flavor profile. It's not anything complex or interesting, but it's an easy drinking IPA as long as you like it plenty bitter.
I know I bought this one several months ago, so it may not do the hops any justice, but it's a pleasant light and bitter brew. From the big swing-top jug purchased at Wine World and Spirits in north Seattle.

On tap at Vancouver. Pours orange with white head. Aroma is of citrusy hops, biscuit malt and orange marmalade. Body is medium, creamy and crisp. Taste is of citrusy, peppery hops, biscuit malt, orange marmalade and ripe fruit. Finish is long and greapfruity. Very nice IPA.
